Week 62: Elder Anderson and the Come and See Fireside!

Hello one, hello all!

How are you all doing today? I hope it's been good! I have had a pretty good week! :D

So the 2 things I really enjoyed the most this week are meeting Elder Anderson and doing the Come and See Fireside! It was so much fun!

Elder Anderson is a really amazing person. He gave some amazing insights! He said a lot of amazing things! Here is a quote that really stuck out to me. The first, "Don't give on yourself. Don't give up on the work." I really need to hear that. I had been kinda down in the dumps. I did my best to ignore the thoughts of giving up. The thoughts we to give up on myself to be able to do the work. Thoughts are very powerful. And I know these thoughts were wrong. I did my best to not dwell on them. But they won't go away. They didn't go away until I heard those words, "Don't give up on yourself." Those 5 words, filled my mind, leaving no room for those thoughts that are no good to me. I am so grateful for my Savior and my Father who is in Heaven. I know that they know what each and every person is going through, and they know exactly what we need to hear. (Weither or not they like their answer). Don't give up on yourself.

The Come and See fireside was Awesome! I love it! We practiced most on Sunday! It was fun! And so many people came to the come and see fireside! It was amazing! They had to set up a lot of more rows because so many people showed up! And for those of you who watched it online, I hope you were able to enjoy it! :D The things that were said and the things that were sung all are true. We are children of God. Families can be together forever. We have a testimony of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am so grateful that I get to be a part of these fireside! I love singing! When I got to this mission, I never expected to be doing anything like this. My mission hasn't turned out exactly what I expected before, but I'm glad it hasn't. How my mission has been so far has been amazing and I wouldn't change any of it!

I know this is God's work! The Church is True. The doctrine, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is pure and is the way we can return to our Father in Heaven. As we live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and choosing to obey the Commandments of God and do the things that will bring us closer to Him, we can be happy. There is more JOY to be found when we choose to obey our Heavenly Father because we love Him! I leave this with you, in the most sacred name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Love,
Sister Osai
